Ken Lazenby with Ken’s Custom Designs is just the type of contractor who readily takes up such a project. Not afraid to innovate solutions for whatever the jobsite throws at him, Ken recently took on just such a project and we are pleased to present his outcome here.
This building was constructed in 1927 and was in a very poor condition when Ken began work. The floor and walls had both been cut and patched for wiring and plumbing at various points in the past.
Ken decided to start from scratch on both the walls and floors by leveling the surface with concrete patching compound.
Stencils offer a variety of pattern options for concrete surfaces. Ken used a self-adhesive stencil to create a faux brick surface on accent walls and intrusive columns.
Ken applied a coat of smooth gray overlay to the walls and taped it off using a brick stencil. Then, he sprayed a thin coat of gray based colored Earthen Red concrete overlay to create the faux brick finish.
Due to plumbing and electrical cuts, the floor also needed an overhaul. Read more and learn how Ken got the job done
